Why is this important?
Cartography that is printed on globes exported from China may show manipulated land borders and island territories that are not recognised by the United Nations and western countries. China subsidise globe manufacturing to make them cheaper to buy and this is used to increase China's 'soft power'.

We only supply globes with cartography that is printed in Europe or the United States which accurately reflect our world.

Beautiful form. The Vienna desktop world globe has a style and elegance all its own. It has a 12" (30cm) diameter antique globe ball that is made using traditional techniques and features the popular raised relief, revealing the world's main mountain ranges in a tactile way. It has an up to date map with over 4,000 place names and pieces of information. The cartographer has included illustrations of historical vessels, together with names of explorers, the routes taken and the dates to add further interest to this beautiful globe. The combination of an antique brass-plated, calibrated semi-meridian, mounted atop an antique brass plated base ensures the enduring appeal of the Vienna globe. It adds character in all room environments so is a safe choice that removes any need to match wood finishes.

This globe is made in Corby, Northamptonshire, in the heart of the UK, using recycled and recyclable materials sourced from the UK and USA and comes complete with a booklet on how to use, enjoy and care for your globe.
